What it's made for:
The MidCity from New Zealand manufacturer Smartmotion is a mid-drive version of their classic eCity. It keeps the same entry-level practicality and price tier but moves the motor to the center for greater range, power, and efficiency. They then go on to provide a build kit that packs serious value with full-wrap fenders, a high-capacity rear rack, and integrated lights. Simply, the MidCity is the bike for working kiwis who want to dip a toe into the ebike waters and want all the benefits mid-drive motors can offer.
Why we love it:
We've loved Smartmotion's classic eCity for years, they've allowed more people to get onto ebikes and ride more, but we've always had some reservations about recommending a hub-driven bike. Well, reservations no more! The MidCity provides great value, a comfortable ride, and a peppy mid-drive motor that extends range and increases power.
